I have discontinued the full backups of subversion repositories on  
osgeo1 by commenting out the calls to do so in the scripts.  The  
mirror is up and syncing hourly, and it has been running without  
trouble for almost a week.  This should free up considerable storage  
and cpu resources, especially during the backup time (~10am European  

We will still maintain an incremental dump, however, which essentially  
ends up being a single copy of the repository that is added to every  
three hours with the latest transactions.

The subversion dumps should no longer be needed as part of the  
backup(s), and it hopefully will free up the space to get us under the  
wire.  Shawn and Tyler, can you guys take care of trimming the full  
dump svn stuff as part of the peer1 backup purging?
